Screen shots with MegaLogViewer

Postby LT401Vette » Tue Apr 03, 2007 6:51 am

I've noticed quite a few manual screenshots being made of MLV. I have simplified this by incorporating it into MLV. To create a screenshot of just the graph section you are currently looking at:
On the Menubar select "File-->Save Graph as PNG or Jpeg"
That simple:


The default format will be PNG if you are running on JRE 1.4 or newer, jpeg is all that is available on anything older.
The reason I have selected PNG as the default, for limited color images like a graph (compared to a photo) it will compress smaller and have NO LOSS of color or quality. Jpeg, while great for high color count photos looses a great deal of color and quality. The image will become blurred and less brilliant with Jpeg. That is just the way the jpeg compression algorithm works, it works much better than png for photos, but for graphs, png (or GIF) is far superior.
